EMERALD ICE
THE integrated circuit EMULATION TOOL.

 


Based
on a PC, EMErald(R) ICE allows all companies to access to system-on-chip (SOC) without changing the design team structure, the major time consuming tasks are developed in parallel therefore reducing the NRE cost and the time-to-market.

EMerald is an essential validation step for an ASIC development flow :

 

Advantages:  

· Micro-controller based applications prototype approach
· Secure schedules and risks
· Time to market reduction
· Software validation
· Design re-use approach

 




Architecture:  

EMerald includes three main parts:

THE HARDWARE PLATFORM: Based on FPGA

Generic External box

 
  Independent PC Interface

· ISA Interface
· USB Interface
· RS232 Interface (on request)

 

THE SOFTWARE TOOLKIT
F
ully integrated development system providing advanced support software for emulated microprocessor cores and kit parts.

Architecture validation
Customizable de-bug tool : It provides on-line view of Registers, RAM, ROM, assembler, C source
C-Compiler (Keil Compatible)
Assembler-linker
A Logic Analyzer, which facilitates in-depth tracing and debugging
Automatic VHDL based ASIC Netlist generation.

 

THE LIBRARY
Universal Pre-designed IP blocks are included helping system engineers to fix the architecture.
Identical VHDL description for FPGA and ASIC digital functions.
Design re-use approach provides the possibility to the customer to include itself:

  ·     Application specific micro-controller
·     Previous development down by the customer
·     Specific IPs

This open tool can assure the confidentiality of the ASIC development.
